That is not how our Founding Fathers intended it. And I’m tired of this separation of church and state junk that’s not in the Constitution. It was in a stinking letter and it means nothing like what they say it does.”
Rep. Lauren Boebert, in a speech to parishioners at a Colorado church, referring to an 1802 letter from Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut

Head for a place where politicians don’t care about their people, because we do care and that’s why we’re hauling your tent to a landfill and cutting off your checks today. You are a drug addict. Get a job or leave. This is our city, you are not allowed to wreck it; you didn’t build it.”
